I took my 10 years old kid to this zoo and he loved it... Lots of animals and birds... Located at Bosque de Chapultepec it is perfect for a walk and a time with family and kids... You can reach the zoo by taking public transportation like the bus or metro, entrance is for free however you can leave a cash contribution to support the zoo

No, it's not Disney, but neither does it cost $100+ to get in. This is a free zoo and we saw many families there enjoying the animals - families who wouldn't be able to afford an expensive entrance ticket. The exhibits are definitely not large "natural habitat" enclosures, but neither are they square concrete blocks. A lot of them looked pretty old and tired, and many were just empty. It was obvious that at one time the zoo was in much better shape and even had a row of fast-food places, all of which were closed. The animals were not starving and were not pacing the fences like they would be if too tightly confined. Our big disappointment was the pandas. They're what we went to see, of course. They have a nice, outdoor enclosure, but were inside, behind a glass so darkly tinted that you could barely see anything through it. About all we saw was the reflection of everyone trying to catch a glimpse of the pandas! If we get back sometime we'd try going in the morning. They maybe put them inside where it's cooler in the afternoon. Good for them, bad for us.

To understand this zoo one have to understand that this zoo is part of a social politic that the Mexican government had some years ago about creating a city that includes even the poorest people. As the CDMX metro system, this zoo was created too be used by even the poorest people, so all the zoo is free. Is kind of amazing that the zoo has such an amazing collection and design even if the governor's of the last 30 years had been awfully corrupt. But there is also a lot of problems , many animals where remove in last years because the new law of protection to wild life in the city. The main problem is the huge amount of people that visit this place , many of this kids that bother and stress the animals. By far the best part is the butterflies place. If you go please don't scream or bother the animals they are not toys

The setting is drab but the pandas are chilling. Go to see the cuddly bears nibbling on their bamboo. Centrally locates and free , it’s worth a directed visit

I've been to many zoos in big cities, but I haven't seen any that depressed me more than this one. It definitely needs cleaning and updating. It's free so people can come and see the animals, and I guess if you have not been to other zoos you won't know how depressing it can be. We did see the Russian Pandas--lounging on platforms. I didn't know if they were tired or just old. There is a good mural that gives the lineage of the pandas.
